Latest DLC for Ark: Survival has evolved he brought with him a pile of new creatures to tame and items to clean up – but some of these toys require new resources to craft. Here is where to find and farm Element Dust in Ark Extinction.
How to get Element Dust in Ark Extinction
Element Dust is not just a one-piece pony, it is a vital resource that has many uses throughout the new DLC Ark of Extinction. First, it powers a great new drone – Scout – which allows you to search the area from above and highlight life below.
Second, Element Dust is necessary to create certain plans that you loot from Enforcers. You can take these plans to the city terminal, where you can then make an Enforcer for yourself. Once you make an Enforcer, you’ll need to keep its supplies in stock with Element Dust instead of food.
Enforcer plans require a hell of a lot more Element Dust than just powering your explorer, especially as their quality increases. They range from Primitive to Ramshackle, Apprentice and Journeyman to Mastercraft and Ascendant as well as other Ark objects.
A higher level of wild Enforcers will abandon better plans and only then can you tame them.
There are two main methods of collecting Element Dust in Ark Extinction.
If you’re only after small amounts for things like powering your scout, then you can hit the streetlights in the Big City with your pickaxe or ax and collect some Element Dust.
You will need to get it to grow more Element Dust killing enforcers themselves. They dropped it apart from the plans, which really makes sense because they saw how they were driven.
We also saw reports that players got Element Dust from the new one Orbital storage drops.
Extinction is the final DLC that will be released as part of a seasonal Ark subscription. Developer Wild Wild celebrates the milestone by making the basic version of Ark available until November 11th.
